If you have been following some of my blog posts, you know I write quick, simple, easy knitting patterns. I have been knitting for over 50 years and I still love simple patterns. I love most things in life to be simple. Today I’m bringing you the Elk Creek knitted dishcloth pattern.
Elk Creek is mostly simple knit stitches with a garter stitch (knit every stitch) border. What makes this pattern unique is knitting a few knit & purl stitches in the back loop only creating a raised effect.
If you have practiced the knit & purl stitches and are ready to move on to add another stitch to your knitting arsenal, then this would be an easy, fun and practical one to learn.
Henni, the genius behind Knit With Henni website, has graciously provided instructions on exactly how to do the “knit & purl back loop” method and you can find the instructions here. If you haven’t checked out Henni’s how to’s, please do. She takes the guess work out of various knitting terms and provided beautifully detailed how to’s for beginner knitters.
As with all knit So Easy patterns, the Elk Creek patterns provides you with row by row instructions, clearly written and easy to follow.
You can find the Elk Creek pattern here and I hope you enjoy making it. Let me know how it goes in the comments below!
